What we do

Flow plates

Flow plates — We have many years of experience in producing flow plates for both PEM and DMFC fuel cells.

We offer excellent electrical and thermal conductivity at competitive prices using state-of-the-art flow plate design, combined with carefully selected raw material compounds and mass production. During recent years, we have produced hundreds of thousands of flow plates.

Solutions for customers with high quality demands

  • Bipolar plates based on graphite composites
  • Milled pre-production for design verification
  • In-house tool design
  • Adaption of material grade to cus tomers needs
  • Mold in shape volume manufacturing
  • Solutions for LT-PEM, DMFC & redox flow batteries

Tested, approved & supplied to various segments

  • Portable (DMFC > 300,000 plates)
  • Stationary (Telecom, CHP)
  • Special space/marine with H2/O2
  • Transport fuel cell systems (range extenders, UAV, buses)

Flow plates — Products & services we offer

Manufacturing of flow plates based on your own proprietary designs

Sizes and designs according to customer drawings

Low cost press moldings for high volume serial production

CNC machining for small series or prototype plates

Blank composite plates for your own processing tooling


MEA —The membrane electrode assembly is the core component of a fuel cell.

Thanks to our knowledge and continuous development, we can now offer 3-, 5-, and 7-layer MEAs with increased power density and durability and reduced catalyst loading. Our MEAs are based on advanced catalyst and coat ing technology, and provide your fuel cell stacks with improved overall performance and lifetime.

The IRD Fuel Cells production plant is both suitable for customised prototype manufacturing for customers who require pre-commercial volumes, as well as for reliable supply of components within a large scale manufacturing framework.
